I had two book choices in my hand. This one and that one. At no surprise to me now I’m glad I chose this one. I must admit that the cover intrigued and drew me in at first, but then when I started reading the first few pages of Texas Pride, I was instantly hooked and certainly happy with the way it was moving along.
I could tell from the first few paragraphs that I was going to enjoy the way it was written by how well the words flowed and fluently moved from one point to the next. I really can say there wasn’t a stale moment in this book. No hiccups that made me feel as though there was no direction to the story.
The further into the story I read, I was relating to the characters pretty well. Mostly because in a small way there were similarities of the shoes they walked in, combating against the world while working hard to keep everybody else happy and at the same time forgetting about ourselves. Heartache, frustration, fears and yes, happiness twisted around these two while surviving everyday life. It was a pleasure settling in from the sidelines with these two as they carried on each and every day. I was pulled into the book a few times and simply wanted to yell, ‘Come out already.’ However if they heard me, by some weird coincidence, the story would have ended and I wouldn’t have liked that at all. I wanted the story to keep on going.
A road to discovery was told in a special way that involved two beautiful men in love who live in a place that they thought was way too deep in the closet to let them step out of it. I was eager to turn the page and wanted to badly know what was going to happen next. Even the smaller parts in between that were there to fill in gaps along the way were written well and did not feel out of place or intrusive to the story.
One major part of the story I truly liked was that the romance started quickly in the beginning and I was able to enjoy them being together throughout the book instead of reading about two sweethearts trying to get together and when they finally do the story abruptly ends like so many others do.
I could go on about how good this book is, but I won’t. I will just simply recommend that it as a standout story that belongs in everybody’s personal library.
